What Our Customers Say About Our Lavender Araucana (Large Fowl)

“As always both Steve and Steph communicated brilliantly, fast efficient service and superb quality eggs. Steph contacted me to let me know that she would send them the following day and they arrived ahead of schedule, well packed and in perfect condition. Well done to all the Cheshire poultry team and many thanks.”

Mark Sharples Excellent

“Eggs were uniform size and all fantastic in colour, they are due to hatch on Friday its Monday today and five out of the six you sent me are fertile and completely full of chick and so I’m hopeful that my 8yr old will have her ‘purple’ chickens just in time for her birthday. thank you after a long hunt I know where to order quality hatching eggs from now.”
